Hansford’s horsepower is back

Defending champion Hansford Prepares For 2023 Touring Car Masters Series

Round 3 of the 2023 Touring Car Masters series is coming up at Winton Motor Raceway, June 9, 10 & 11. Defending series champion Ryan Hansford is second in the points after two rounds and he will have his #1 engine back in the Multispares Torana, after parts were delayed many months.

Team owner, Rod Dawson was quietly confident after the 5L Chev came off the engine dyno at Cragsted Performance Engines last week. “Craig had a little more time on the dyno this time and has come up with a touch more mid-range torque, whilst still getting the maximum HP that we had before so that has put a smile on my face” said Rod

“Craig gave us a mighty good engine first time but like all things, each time he gives it a freshen up he find a bit more, so this should give Ryan a great chance to chase down those points over the remaining rounds” Rod added.

The Winton track has had mixed results for Ryan, but he has always been quick there and with the Multispares Torana a more developed package since the series last visit, he is confident of a good showing this weekend.

“I have always gone well at Winton, plus it is quick technical, tight and twisty so with how well the car handled at Newcastle I’m expecting us to be right at the front,” said Ryan.

With the new engine ready and dyno’d plus a new wrap on the race transporter, the Multispares Torana headed to Melbourne for the opening of their new branch at Truganina.
